Woman Claiming She Was Dumped One Week Before Vacation Praised for Response

A woman has been cheered online after sharing how she responded to a sudden breakup.

The Quebec woman, who goes by @EmmaDiPalmaa on TikTok, had shared in a newly-viral post to the platform that her boyfriend left her a week before the pair were due to go on a summer vacation to Portugal.

Di Palma made clear in the post that she’d substituted her dad for her ex and had taken him along with her to Europe instead, determined not to allow the breakup to ruin her trip.

The video, which shows the pair enjoying drinks in the sun, was captioned: “Love you dad.”

How to Move on From a Breakup?

Family law expert, author and celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser told Newsweek that while breakups are emotionally difficult, it’s important for each person within a relationship to figure out what’s best for them individually instead of immediately trying to get back together after splitting up.

“I’ve seen some couples get back together and give it another go after breaking up, and ending up happier than ever before. However, I’ve also seen plenty of couples try to force something that just isn’t meant to be. It’s all about being honest with yourself and your partner, and being willing to put in the work to make things right,” Wasser said.
